NEW DELHI, Feb 28 - Railways has decided to cancel operations of the Indo-Pak Samjhauta Express on its side due to drastic decline in occupancy, especially after the Pulwama terror attack, and the suspension of services from across the border, sources said.

No date of resumption of services has been fixed so far, they said.

The Railway Board cancelled all operations of the Attari Special Express, Delhi-Attari-Delhi, which together with the Wagah-Lahore link is known as the Samjhauta or Friendship Express - from the train�s next scheduled run which is on Sunday, the sources said.

Pakistan has already suspended services on its end, officials said here, amidst strain in ties in the aftermath of the February 14 terror attack on CRPF personnel in Pulwama and subsequent developments.

�With no passengers from Pakistan, it makes no sense to run it on our end. Hopefully we will be able to resume services once the tension de-escalates,� a source said. � PTI
